New words have been added to the Oxford Dictionary, including one that Miley Cyrus made famous with a racy performance at the Video Music Awards this past weekend.

In the last quarterly update, the words “twerk,” “selfie,” “buzzworthy,” “srsly” “phablet” and “unlike” were all added to the dictionary.

Even words like “food baby” and “geek chic” found a place in the dictionary.

Officials say the book adds 1,000 new entries to its online version every year.
